Scotland’s Most Eligible


Here’s one more from our pick of some of the trade’s most eligible ladies and gents, LAUREN MURRAY. We would’ve loved to have included more of you had we the space…

General Manager
Dowans Hotel

Lauren Murray, GM at her family-run Dowans Hotel, must be one of the most well-travelled people we’ve ever had the pleasure of interviewing. Not only was she born in Barcelona, but growing up she also lived in Hong Kong, Manila and Istanbul.

Lauren studied Hospitality and Events management in Edinburgh, followed by a stint at the Royal Scots Club in the capital.

Said Lauren, “This is where I fell in love with the events business – and weddings especially. I’m always the one sobbing in the corner, yes even if I don’t know them personally.” Lauren also runs the hotel bar and devises the cocktails, even though she doesn’t drink. “My body doesn’t react all that well to alcohol. I’m more of a foodie and love eating out. I also love reading and I’m in currently in the middle of Stephen Fry’s ‘Mythos’ about Greek mythology. I really wanted to be an archaeologist but, apart from the fact it’s incredibly difficult to get in to, my sister Steph said that I talk too much, so working in hospitality is far more me.”
